Christmas Non-Reading List for Feminists

OK, so it's Christmas and everybody seems to have recommended reading lists up. Prof Reynolds posted this one. Not surprised that Atlas Shrugged is on the list. Here is an interesting tidbit that I picked up...the Library of Congress and the Book of the Month Club did a survey asking people what the most influencial book of the 20th century was. Winner: Atlas Shrugged. Wow, so a woman wrote a book that many people consider the most influential of the 20th century. Pretty damn snazzy, for a chick. Sounds like something that ya' might oughta teach in a women's studies course at college if you were into, ya' know, women doing cool things that, like, matter.

Turns out, not so much. Word is that Rand is not a hot item on the reading lists of course curriculae. About as popular as PoliSci 371 - "Great Women in 20th Century Politics: Thatcher, Kirkpatrick and Rice."
